Top Ten Favorite Story Starters from Pinterest

Hi! This is Annette, one of Becki’s writer pals. (Mostly, I pretend to write while Becki actually writes… but who can say “no” to coffee with a friend?)

So I spend a lot of time on Pinterest. Which is why I’m here today to share with you my ten favorite story starters that I’ve found via Pinterest. They’re all pictures, so you can let your imagination run wild with these. You can use them from a simple elementary school journal prompt, to perhaps an award winning novel. I will also include some links to other story starter boards near the bottom, in case you want to find some yourself. Each picture here links to the original pin.

So without further ado…
